So, if you are like most visitors, the foremost reason to book a stay at these condos, villas, and vacation homes is to enjoy some fun in the sun. From relaxing on a soft beach towel sipping on cold drinks and working on your tan to building sandcastles with the kids and comparing seashell scores, relaxation and family fun truly bump up a few notches at this Emerald Coast vacation destination. The views are unbelievable, while the cool breezes are refreshing. Upgrade to Beach Club of Sandestin membership, and you’ll enjoy your own private beach with chairs, umbrellas, cabanas, and towel service.


Feel free to bring your bag of clubs along, because the sport is definitely one of the main attractions at this resort. It’s rare to find a location where the public is invited to play on courses that have attracted professional events such as several Champions Tour stops and the NCAA National Championships.

The courses range in degree of difficulty, but they all display such breathtaking views that it may be hard to take notice of your scorecard. Plus, you can say you played where the pros have played!
